The most beautiful car of the 21st centuries

One thing that is noteworthy from the beauty of a four-wheeled vehicle can be seen when the vehicle perfectly represents the soul of the maker. Maybe the sentence is too cliche, in short, how can we as ordinary people see those beauty? Now, let's get a look one of the most beautiful cars of the 21st centuries as follow;

As we all know, that one of the most beautiful cars of the 21st centuries is Maserati A8GCS Berlinetta designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring Supeleggera, an Italian coachbuilder company based in Milan in 2008. It was a light and compact two-seater sports car and debuted at the 2008 Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este.

As quoted of Motortrend, the awarding of the title of 'the most beautiful supercar of the year' was carried out by a panel comprised of designers, car experts and former Formula 1 driver Alain Prost on the sidelines of the Automobile International Festival 2009 event in Paris based on the voting results of more than one million viewers of the Eurosport television network. The viewers' choices at the time included the Bugatti Sport Veyron, BMW 750i and Lotus Evora.

That choice seems right on target, because it's the A8GCS was initially developed as a showpiece for the company to advertise their manufacturing capabilities. This beautiful car was built by Carrozzeria Touring based on the Maserati Coupé GranSport. All the process done by the special team headed of Louis de Fabribeckers (also known as the Touring' head of design). As the car' design aimed for a balance between the front end and rear flanks, and a soft aggressiveness.

The design stays to the true Carrozzeria Touring' heritage, while its coachbuilder is said to be inspired by the classic long snouted Isotta Fraschini and Lancia Flying Star figures. In the making process into a modern design vehicle, the Carrozzeria Touring relies on smaller front and rear overhangs, a prominent front grille and two graceful horizontal body lines.

And with a design such this, it seems Touring wants to continue the tradition of the legendary Maserati' long-nosed cars such as the A6GCS/53 of the 1950s. Meanwhile, the styling details like the minimalist chrome trim and classic wire wheels give the car a distinctive retro vibe, while also not being unnecessarily nostalgic.
Glancing to the car' dimensions, the Touring Superleggera A8GCS Berlinetta is 4.2 meters long and only 1.2 meters high and 2.5 meters of wheelbase. The Touring's beautiful sports coupé is powered by a 4.2 liter V8 engine capable spewing power of 400 horse power. And for the weight of car itself, exactly such the engineers initially planned, ie the finished car' weight of 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs) or 180 kg (400 lbs) lighter than the Maserati GranSport. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOURINGSUPERLEGGERA | MOTORTREND | DRIVETRIBE | ]
